Wow-Wotta-Wednesday: Know our enemy’s strategy – Neil Mackereth

On Wednesday evening Neil emails me saying, “Another “God-incidence” re parallels with Veronika’s blog!” [Satan has power…But it is limited]

KNOW YOUR ENEMY

INTRODUCTION

I happen to believe that the Word of God is a necessary and authoritative guide for our well-being. It is clear, accurate, necessary and sufficient to all our needs. The Bible is best read with integrity, in context and, above all, with Holy Spirit guidance. It is explains God’s plan for the redemption of mankind and it tells us what will happen next.

I make my views plain so that what I am about to write will not be misconstrued. The Bible does not say what liberals want to hear. In fact, if God chose to publish on social media (e.g., Facebook or Twitter) His Ten Commandments, His account would be closed. The same censorship would apply to the publication of any one of many other scriptures that provide advice on inter-relational behaviour!

What is particularly distressing is that many in the church agree with, and some even encourage, the liberal agenda, which advocates evil in the guise of freeing people from constraint. In so doing, they are complicit with Satan’s schemes and, in order to confirm their misguided views, they either ignore, adjust or blatantly misinterpret Scripture. We pray for today’s false teachers and false prophets to be enlightened.

Satan must be delighted. However, things don’t always go his way and certainly, on big issues, his defeats have been spectacular! Nevertheless, I believe we should seek to be both aware and wary of our adversary and keep careful watch for satanic intrigue and manipulation. Victory is assured but battles will continue to the end.

Satan’s PLAN / STRATEGY

Satan knows what the Bible says and that the book of Revelation shows that Jesus will return to Jerusalem to take His rightful place on the throne of David, as King of the Jews.  He will rule His people and the world from Jerusalem.  Satan’s options for preventing this (and his ultimate banishment to “the lake of burning sulphur” Revelation 20:10) include endeavours to:

1) tempt Jesus to sin and so become unworthy as Saviour

2) destroy Jesus;

3) disperse the Jews and fragment and undermine their national identity and/or;

4) annihilate all Jews so that Jesus has no Jewish Kingdom to return to and rule;

5) prevent the establishment of a Jewish nation state (Israel) and/or

6) destroy Israel or Jerusalem, or to divide Jerusalem (i.e., to ensure control remains in the hands of non-believers).

He tried the first and was unsuccessful. He tried the second and was spectacularly defeated, when Jesus rose from the dead.  The remainder (3 to 6) have been ongoing through history. One success has been his endeavours to encourage many in the church to avoid the study of and teaching on the Book of Revelation. I want to emphasise, however, that Satan suffered a huge setback with the reestablishment of Israel as a nation state in 1948 and the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967.

WHAT’S THIS HAVE TO DO WITH OUR CURRENT SITUATION?

Satan’s next move is to seek to achieve 6 (above) by establishing a “New World Order” i.e., to rule the world through his henchmen (the Antichrist, the False Prophet and their followers). When I say “next move” it has in fact been under development for many centuries. Satan is a liar and deceiver, the architect of all things evil, but he lacks originality and often seeks to mimic (e.g., Satan, the Antichrist and the False Prophet can be said to be a “trinity”, albeit unholy!).

He also seeks to conceal his intentions: those who are carrying forward his plans often operate in confidential cabals. These secret societies (e.g., the Knights Templar, the Illuminati, the Freemasons) have provided continuity to generations of extremely powerful people who have been influencing and manipulating events behind the scenes. There may, of course, be a secret society whose security is so successful that we have no knowledge of its existence, as a group (though we might feel we could name two or three likely members!).

THE NEXT STEP

What does seem clear, to those who have eyes to see, is that the “puppet masters”, whoever they are, have globalist intentions. More recently, the idea of distinct cabals has become clouded as particular groups within society (e.g., the “deep state” in the USA) have taken centre stage.

However, the possibility of intrigue and corruption being revealed has led to a new development. The best way to hide a diabolical scheme is in a forest of conspiracy theories. To cover the main thrust of the globalist intentions (Satan’s plan) there is a second conspiracy which aims to create a multitude of conspiracy theories, to camouflage the primary (real) conspiracy!

Put another way, the conspirators are content for people to consider revelations of their intentions to be “conspiracy theories” and so have them dismissed as fantasy.

Furthermore, their grip on main-stream media (including who is employed and what is broadcast) is a textbook example of how to control information and manipulate opinion. They are able to ridicule and discredit all views that run counter to their agenda. This repressive hold may also account for the lack of modern equivalents to the Watergate scandal investigative journalists (Woodward and Bernstein).

CONCLUSION

As I have said before, we are witnessing an essential step on the road to a New World Order. At the same time, the economies of the world are reeling from the effects of the pandemic. Fertile ground which is paving the way for the Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” plans for a global economic system, which is a vital element in the establishment of a “One World Government”.

Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled in our time: what an immense privilege and blessing that is! Some things are inevitable (prophesied). Even so, I have every expectation that there will be times of parenthesis (as in Revelation). Periods set aside where the globalist plans stall, allowing opportunities for revival and Kingdom expansion. These set-asides are beyond Satan’s ability to prevent, beyond the limits he has been set by God.  

We pray for a mighty revival, before the final harvest of separation (wheat and tares).

“An informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans” (F/P #10.31)

In case you were still doubting it, the election was stolen. Time magazine has admitted it. Bragged about it even. Of course it is couched in language suggesting that they are some kind of heros, but what is really being described is the stealing of the election. “That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies […continue reading at… ] “an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans”

End-Times Briefing 13: triple ‘God-incidence’ re. contactless payments & Mark of the Beast

Puzzle In Sky by Idea Go, courtesy Freedigitalphotos.com

As if by coincidence, a week ago today three people alerted me separately to ‘the Mark of the Beast,’ as in the 13th chapter of The Book of Revelation, as herein:

The Beast from the Earth

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives [f]those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no-one may buy or sell except one who has [g]the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. [NKJV courtesy BibleGateway.com – the Greek is particularly illuminating on ’emblem of the hand’: click image to read in full.]

1st GOD-INCIDENCE

Friday 26th June was the latter half of 24 hours of fasting to finish a week of prayer held by our church. I limited my drinks to tea or coffee and didn’t have any accompanying ‘yummies’! Therefore, this unusual when joining a couple for a chat over morning coffee at Petersfield Heath. It was their first time near others since the start of lockdown three months ago.

For several weeks the outdoor cafe has opened on certain days to serve take-away drinks, subject to ‘socially distanced’ queuing and not handling items, such as cash, for the good of the staff’s health. So, it’s ‘contactless payments only’. We’ve known the manager since the cafe first opened and my card is not enabled for such payments, so they allow me to pay by tapping my PIN whilst wearing one of their disposable gloves.

Last Friday, the manager took orders and asked if I don’t use contactless on principle, so I answered “Yes”. He said local Environmental Health officials are instructing businesses to reopen by following his method of accepting money. That is, local firms are now encouraged not to accept any cash, thus avoiding the risk of Covid-19 virus, and move entirely to payments enabled by a digital personal number – as foretold in Revelation 13!

2nd GOD-INCIDENCE

That evening Neil Mackereth emailed me a new article in which he quotes those verses in connection with a vaccination programme against the Covid-19 virus. The pertinent part coinciding with what I’d heard that morning, reads:

“Everyone will be encouraged to have the vaccination and, for seemingly very sensible reasons, to have an identifying mark (like a tattoo) to show their immunity.
In the early stages of “normalisation”, retail outlets (shops, pubs, restaurants etc.) will be able to relax social distancing restrictions, for those who can show that they have been vaccinated (i.e. have the mark of immunity)…I am not suggesting that it will be inappropriate to have the vaccination. However, if it is conditional on having some sort of mark, great care will be needed in assessing the appropriateness, in light of God’s guidance on the subject. (see Revelation 13:16-18).”

3rd GOD-INCIDENCE

Also, on Friday my phone alerted me to a YouTube video prophet Tomi Arayomi had issued the previous day in which he divulges a dream about lockdown of markets relating to the implantation of radio-frequency identification (RFID) micro-chips. He also brings an important prophetic word for the Church in these days.
In my humble opinion this video is essential viewing! It is most important that we know about such matters because they are directly relevant to End-Times and clearly indicate we’re now there..!!

No wonder I’m ‘God-smacked’ over what the Lord brought to my attention 7 days ago!

“By the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established” (Deuteronomy 19:15)

‘Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said’ (1 Corinthinans 14:29)

End-Times Briefing 10 cont’d: key signs and prophecies

We continue Annex A to Simplicity and examine some items in earlier Briefings:

KEY END-TIME (or SECOND ADVENT) SIGNS and PROPHECIES

An awareness of End-Time signs will help us to see if any world events, as they unfold in the weeks, months and years ahead, can honestly be described as fulfilling Biblical prophecy. Analysis of world events in relation to prophecy requires care and integrity, both to ensure genuine spiritual significance, and to avoid “false news”, conspiracy theories and the pronouncements of false prophets. It will be exceedingly hard to convince a sceptical world that prophecy is being fulfilled!

Some prophecies in the Bible seem particularly significant, in light of current world events, especially in the Middle-East. The following prophecies are worth bearing in mind, especially by those who are intentional about marrying historic prophecies with contemporary occurrences. They are, in short, signs of the End-Times: Continue reading

Passion for the Nation: Time to Move Out!

Click/tap image for link to Passion For The Nation and previous declarations

NB: this arrived whilst I was messaging Abel about posting his latest on Battlegrounds, and is published with Suzanne’s kind permission!

A TIME TO MOVE OUT

As we stand on the edge of a new move of God’s Spirit, we declare over this land:

‘when you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God and the priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it, then you will know which way to go.’ Joshua 3: 3

We declare as lockdown eases and transition begins, a spirit of peace (prosperity, safety and well-being) will rest upon the cities, towns and streets of the nation. We speak health instead of sickness, life instead of death, prosperity against all lack in matters concerning finance and the economy, and that in these days of shaking, many will turn to Jesus.

We praise Him for the power of His love, and the power of His grace upon our lives and we choose to worship, to praise and to look upon His Face. We declare the song of the victory of Jesus will rise changing atmospheres and touching lives, that at this crossover moment, the Name of Jesus and the worship of Jesus will overwhelm the power of every other name. We declare as the people of God put their eyes upon Jesus, they will be filled with fresh joy, fresh strength and fresh courage.  (adapted from October 2018)

The Lord is releasing new horizons, new territory and new vision to all those who will hunger and thirst for Him. In the Name of Jesus, we decree and declare in this nation, God’s people will move in accordance with the ‘now’ word of God in their lives, taking hold, crossing over, ready to advance as a new level of sensitivity and obedience to His Spirit comes upon them. We declare His people will grasp the significance of the hour, the power of His love, His gospel, and His purpose within their lives.

Now Lord at this Pentecost weekend, we agree, across this land Your people will be positioned in every way, open and expectant, in heart and in spirit, for what Your Spirit will do and we say, “Lord, Come.”

We continue to declare in this nation: leaders from all political parties, all Government ministers, civil servants, scientists, researchers, economists and all advisors will work as a team with humility and mutual respect and we specifically speak strength to Boris Johnson.

We declare the voice of God’s wisdom will be heard over every other voice concerning all the current decisions, that His strategies and solutions will be recognised and implemented,  rightly dividing between the health and safety of individuals and the economy of the nation.

Prophecy of great humbling, then spiritual revival in Great Britain (GPS #47.3 cont’d – F/P #165.1)

A great thank you to Carolyn Stewart for transcribing this vital message (previous post refers). Note it was received last November at a time of unprecedented political upheaval in Parliament and speaks directly into this year’s unprecedented economic situation arising from global covid-19 pandemic. And yesterday came news of Britain’s humiliation internationally, as well as scientifically. Hence inclusion of this prophecy in the catalogue of fulfilled prophecies or those coming to pass (Footnotes refer).

Click on this image to listen:

“I just want to share this prophetic word. I was looking through my phone and I found this. (The current date is..we are in April 2020). And as I was looking through my phone of prophecies I found this one called ‘The Humbling of Great Britain’, which I’d never put out before. I completely forgot about it. So I think in the light of what’s going on at the moment, it is very relevant. It is a warning, but it is also an encouragement of what God is doing in our land. I thought I should release this now.

“As I said, this was given in November 2019. This was just before I died as well, so it is quite a significant prophecy. And as I said, I’d forgotten all about it. I just found it on my phone, but I feel it’s important to release it, so I’ll leave it with you. Please listen, please enjoy, please be blessed, and please spread it around as well.

THE HUMBLING OF GREAT BRITAIN (November 2019)

“I will have the people in this land in derision”, says the Lord. “I will pour out my Spirit on this land, and those people that have called to come together to conspire, to tear down My ways and My precepts and My ordinances from this land – this green and pleasant land. Mark My words: I will have them in derision. I am in the heavens and I laugh at their futility, at the things that they’re attempting to do, to close Me off and shut Me off from My own creation and so close down and shut down My people. For that is their ultimate aim. They want Me and every trace of Me eradicated from the land and from education and from every part of this society.

But mark My words; I have plans to prosper this country, and I will bring to shame the wise. I will shame those who have so loftily held their head up – their stiff-necked heads that have said, ‘We will bring our ways! We will bring in our precepts and ordinances in this land, and we will eradicate God, and we will take Him off his throne. And we shall destroy His church.  But not so!

“Sadly, My own Church has failed to see how impoverished and how weakened she has become. She is literally now a remnant in this country. Yet I will do great things with a remnant. Yet when it was I can take three hundred foot-soldiers with Gideon and I can do a great deliverance, and I will do the same also in this land. I will take this small remnant of a Church that is left – those Christians that genuinely acknowledge Me as their Lord and Saviour – and will not bow the knee to Baal and to all his false practices and customs in respect to the laws that are now passing in this land.

Mark My words, punishment will come for the sins that have covered this land. But the punishment, as I always punished Israel in times past, was so that it may bring them to repentance and may bring healing to their land; that when the people are humbled they would pray to me and I would turn in My mercy, I would forgive them their sins and I would then heal their land. I am going to bring punishment to this nation – a time of humbling – but this punishment is not to destroy this nation. This punishment is to humble her and to chastise her, that she may repent of her wicked ways and turn back to Me.

“There will not be many nations in the days ahead that will be permitted to have what this nation will be permitted. You will have a grace and a favour upon you which many other nations will not be given because I have plans and purposes for this country. And even though My own people have been faithless harlots towards Me, know this; that your faithlessness will only go to prove My faithfulness. I will be faithful to My Covenant and to My Word, and I will bring about My ways and My means for this country, and I will pour out My Spirit. And I will bring Revival, but it will not be like any revival that has been before. It will be uncontainable; it will be uncontrollable; and the world will HATE it because it will be so strong and it will be so powerful that they cannot ignore it.

“In times past they’ve been able to turn a blind eye to the things of My Spirit, but in these days everyone will know about it, everybody will know about it. And the same sun that melts the ice also hardens the clay, and men will just drop into two distinct camps: those that love Me and those that absolutely hate Me. This is why in many respects these days are dangerous days, because it will polarize people, in ways stronger than they are now; but you will know the righteous and you will know the evil.

But mark My words, I will do something wonderful with this country; I will restore law and order to this country. This country has become lawless and it has no more order to it. And your Houses of Parliament are an example of the state of your nation, of the division of your nation, of the complexities of your nation. The wickedness and the hardness of heart and the blindness and arrogance of your nation are all set to display, for all the world to see in your own Houses of Parliament. But I am going to do a new thing. And many men will lay down their crowns and place down their swords before Me and repent and give their lives to me. And many powerful men and women who vehemently hate My name, will come to know Me and love My name.

“And some Christians might go, ‘Why, why Lord did you save them? They’re the ones who brought such depravity to our nation. Why did you allow it?’  Because that’s My grace, that’s My mercy, and the very ones that brought in those laws, I will turn into trophies of grace to make the enemy despised in his own camp, for I will make those who passed those wicked laws be the ones that undo them, for they will reveal the secrets and the dark intent and heart of sinful wicked flesh. And the world or this country at least, will look on in horror at the things that they’ve released and allowed in this country, and they will be rescinded and retracted.

“My people, you need to do this: you need to be spending these hours – because it is only hours – you need to be spending these hours in prayer; you need to be spending these hours on your knees; you need to be spending this time in the Word, learning from Me, learning from My Spirit and I will teach you many wonderful things. But this is the time, because there are many bridesmaids out there that do not have enough oil in their lamp and you need to get it in your lamp. No-one can part-exchange their life of intimacy with Me to those that have no intimacy with Me. This is your chance; now is the time to do it, for in the humbling that’s coming – this wind of change that’s going to blow through this land – it’s going to be a difficult time for this nation. It will not be a long time, but the depth of the punishment that will come will be severe, even though it will only be for a short time. It was like when I said to King David, “You can have three years of this, three months of that, or three days of the other”.

“This will be a short punishment but it will be a deep punishment; a deep chastisement to this nation. And I will humble this nation and I will turn her around. And many who are your enemies in these days will become your friends and neighbours in the days to come.

“So be prepared, be encouraged but be warned; this is not going to be an easy day that is coming, it is going to be a difficult day, a difficult time for this nation. Many Christians will cry out, ‘Why did I allow such things to come to this nation?’ But in part, everyone in this nation is responsible for the punishments that are coming.

“There is much worldliness in My Body, much worldliness in My Church, much worldliness in the mindset of Christians, much worldliness in the teachings of the Church! And the teachings of the Church have lost their anchor. They have apostasised; they have become an apostate church, in that they’ve drifted away from the truth of scripture and have chosen to allow the doctrines of men to infiltrate the teachings of the Church. The sacred scriptures should never be changed, never diluted, never touched, never altered, for they sacred and they are from the throne room of heaven itself. How dare man place his DNA and his ideas over that which is heavenly and beyond?

“So take heart to these words and this warning. Be blessed, be encouraged and get ready, for the time is now when the humbling must begin. And it will be short but long. It will be a short period of time but it will feel like the longest period of time, for it will be very intense. And for a period of three years a time of great humbling will come upon this nation, and it will be a heavy three years, a very difficult three years.

“But then things will change, things will turn, and you will go from Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer, Summer into Harvest time.”

    ‘The biggest political con in modern history has descended into farce. Professor McLockdown, has choked on his own junk science, resigning from Sage after the Telegraph exposed that he flouted the very mass house arrest he advocated for everyone else. But his defence – that he broke the rules because he had already caught the virus and recovered from it – is even more revelatory; turns out Britain’s most influential epidemiologist believes that not only can you gain immunity from Covid-19, but that this should release you from lockdown.

    ‘If No 10’s response to coronavirus was really based on “following the science”, of course, these new details about Prof Ferguson’s view might be a game-changer, prompting, at the very least, Downing Street discussions of how to rapidly loosen the rules for those who have had the virus. Like with all good farces, though, the most absurd is yet to come. Incredibly, Downing Street shows little sign of learning from the Ferguson Chapter. And, astonishingly, once again, “the science” is being compromised by political hysteria – a scandal that continues to be barely scrutinised.

    ‘But before we get to the meat, let us briefly chew over the cautionary tale that can be cleaved from the career of Prof Ferguson. He has a track record of making wildly inaccurate projections, for example that BSE would kill 150,000 people (the real figure was fewer than 200)…’

1 o’clock News-blog: EU turns against rebels and leaders in financial chaos (F/P #13.20)

To read original David Noakes prophecy of 17 Nov 2015 about the EU’s demise and the Lord urging Britain to “Come out!”, click here.  This 20th installment of monitoring that word coming to pass is in two parts.(See Prophecies Fulfilled for previous entries)

First, click image below to read this in-depth analysis (not in new window):

Secondly, watcher Roger in S. Africa kindly notified me of this and copied its report, (click image for report – not in new window):

“Sixteen hours in a virtual meeting and virtually nothing was achieved,” said one Spanish diplomat, who spoke of an exhausting EU video conference all too reminiscent of the days of the Greek financial crisis.

‘This time though, in the words of a Danish colleague, “it appears to be a financial crisis, on steroids”.

‘A deep, deep recession is looming across the EU as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

‘The all-nighter into Wednesday, pulled by the EU’s 27 finance ministers, was supposed to provide a financial solution to help shield the worst-hit countries.

‘Video conferences are becoming the norm for the EU, but this 16-hour night session went on almost until dawn.

‘They were supposed to pass on the good news to their bosses, and in a matter of days EU leaders would sign off on a new recovery fund in an extraordinary video summit.

‘At five o’clock in the morning though, they gave up the ghost.

‘French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire told colleagues: “As we count the deaths of hundreds and thousands, you ministers are playing with words and adjectives. It shames finance ministers, and it shames Europe.”

What choices do they have?

‘There had been several proposals on the table worth billions for countries to access emergency funds.

‘One proposal by the Spanish and Italians was dubbed “coronabonds”: debt or IOUs backed by all members of the eurozone – a collective responsibility.

‘The Dutch aren’t having any of that. They want member states to be responsible for their own debt and didn’t “budge an inch”, according to Italian officials. For now, that looks to be a non-starter.

‘The best idea being put forward is from the French, where all 27 EU governments could access a recovery fund, which can be paid back in the distant future.

Again, it was the Dutch that asked for repayment conditions to be progressively applied. Italy, though, refuses to sign up to another strict debit plan.

One notable change from meetings gone by was that there appeared to be no lead player in the room.

Germany uncharacteristically chose not to take that dominant position and was eager to compromise.

‘The ministers meet again on Thursday, screen to screen. trying to find a balance between funding that doesn’t exclude the idea of countries sharing the debt, but doesn’t commit to it either.’

Fulfilled Prophecy #13.17 – EU goes into Brexit meltdown

Ever since David Noakes brought that word in November 2015 from the Lord urging Britain to “Come out” of the EU, we’ve been monitoring reports indicative of progress towards the fulfillment of the reason behind the Lord’s admonition (emphases mine):

“Rather than rely on Me and My faithfulness to you, you chose, for worldly purposes, to join yourself to an institution which has denied My Name and refused to acknowledge Me in its councils. My fierce anger is upon that institution on account of its rebellion, its defiant rejection of Me and its hardness of heart towards My ancient people IsraelI warn you now that the European institution will not repent, even though I bring disaster and destruction upon it. I urge you, O Britain still beloved by Me for the sake of your godly forefathers, come out of her, so that you may not be caught up in that same destruction, for I am even now arising in judgment to bring to nothing what she has sought to achieve….”

A New Year 2020 prayer for you – dream of going up a level (GPS #42)

I pray that everyone reading this may be blessed with amazing, fresh revelations that give you 20-20 spiritual vision into what our Lord Jesus Christ has for you personally this year.

Not yet walking with Him? I ask that He bless you with as unexpected life-changing and stunning a revelation He confronted me with just over 30 years ago, as told herein. It’s since been a never-ending adventure!

AMEN

Today and Monday just before Christmas are the only days I’m on-line during the holy-days fortnight whilst I’m being blessed with studying my present from Nina – Unlocking The Biblical Watch of Messiah’s Return by Jonathan Hill, the publication of which I’d announced herein. It’s a most exceptional book and confirms many things; so I hope to blog about it soon.

What’s more, inspired by a discussion on this blog about the ‘Kingdom Remnant’ and my contemplation of Genesis 1:0 – that’s right, you read right – before ‘The Beginning’, as well as  recent words brought by Leisa, before Christmas I dreamed of an unknown man telling me exactly what I was just about to tell him: “It’s time to ascend to a new spiritual level…” (What followed indicated this was not just any ol’ dream.)

Lo and behold, long-time reader Lynne emails me on New Year’s Day about what she and her husband heard whilst watching the TV broadcast of…’Fireworks going off in London at midnight and the lyrics of a song (haven’t a clue which one or who was singing) were and can’t remember any lyrics after: “I will take you to a place you have never been before…”, and which immediately got my attention. This morning looking at Lion Bites…”I am taking you to a new place.”

SO, if you’ve not already read this from Glasgow Prophetic Centre:

It is time for a new level in your life, and I am opening up the doors and floodgates of heaven to start to facilitate your forward movement. Do not partner with worry in these days nor consider that this is a time for pause or delay. I am speaking the words ‘advance, breakthrough, movement, momentum’ over the decade you have crossed into, and it’s time to call your internal beliefs and thought processes to align with this reality.

I am taking you to a new place like I did through David when he went to Baal Perazim. Just as he named this place because he encountered me as the ‘Master of the Breakthrough’, so you will name this season in your life ‘The Days of Advance and Breakthrough’. You will think about yourself differently as a result, you will think about your call differently, you will know what it is to have solutions that break open stuck and stagnant places, you will understand how to occupy financial breakthrough, and courage to step out will be yours!

And so I say to you, “As waters break out, so I will break out against your enemies and I will flood your life with glory solutions, glory ideas and glory encounters!”

2 Samuel 5:20
So David came to Baal-Perazim, and David defeated them there. He said, “The Lord has burst forth against my enemies before me, like a bursting flood.” Therefore, that place is called Baal-Perazim.

Revd Dr Clifford Hill on Brexit: great shaking yet a door of hope

I’m particularly drawn to Dr Hill’s reminder of the Shaking of Nations prophesied in 1986 (unknown to me but Hebrews 12:27 was opened to me 10 years later) in his editorial to Prophecy Today UK, and grateful for ongoing permission to republish. Here’s Dr Hill on the causes of the current crisis:

A DOOR OF HOPE

What next for beleaguered Britain?

So Boris has got a deal! But the big question facing Christians in Britain is this – what is God saying to us? Is the hand of God inexorably guiding the nation towards a no deal outcome? Amazingly, Prime Minister Johnson has secured a deal with the EU which everyone said was impossible. But so did Mrs May last year! And her deal was firmly rejected by Parliament. Surely, Boris must know that whatever he presents to our rebellious Parliament on ‘Super-Saturday’ will have very little chance of being given the approval of the majority of our MPs. Even if the Archangel Gabriel appeared with a divinely approved deal, written in Heaven, it would be thrown out by this Parliament!

Having written that, I am well aware that I may have to eat my own words if something amazing happens and the new deal is overwhelmingly approved by Parliament. If that does happen, I would seriously question the value of the deal, as I have no confidence that this Parliament will do anything righteous, or that anything agreed with the European Union will be in the best interests of Britain.

I firmly believe that leaving with no deal is far better than leaving with a bad deal that keeps us partially tied to the EU. We need a clean break so that we have the opportunity to recalibrate all our relationships with God and with others.

A vision of radical changes within Parliament

Thank you to Matthew Holman (HearYourWayBristol) for kindly permitting publication of what he posted today in Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival (Facebook group). As with all words and visions, it’s for your weighing with the Lord and scripture:

‘I had a vision of the Houses of Parliament. A bell was being rung from inside and it made everyone stop and pay attention – like a fire alarm but a traditional hand rung bell mounted on the wall. People were coming from all over to gather around Parliament. Even the Thames stopped flowing!

‘Then as the bell was still ringing, and the sound was reverberating the whole inside of the buildings, a tannoy-style speaker appeared from the clouds and God was speaking over Parliament (and therefore the nation) and all who had gathered could hear His voice.

‘I then heard the words “Even the stones shall cry out” and I saw in the spirit the very stones of the building proclaiming God’s truths [Footnote refers: RB]. But also I saw that they knew everything historic that had taken place in the buildings of Parliament – seen and unseen, and that their knowledge was released. I then got the scripture within Luke 19 (vv 39-40):

And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

‘From this I saw the voices – of those who know who they are in Christ – rising up. They walked into the chambers and began to worship, whilst those who had their own agendas and love of money were kept in the hallways shut behind the big doors.

‘I then had the scripture: “And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous”. I saw vast sums of money and gold laid on the central table (like an altar) and the fire of heaven came down and melted and refined the money and gold. As it was purified and turned liquid it went out into the nation like veins – like a golden river. It stretched to all parts of the UK. And also went into the walls of Parliament as like a declaration of re-purpose.

‘At this time I saw a hit in the stock market – that God was showing his authority over money and that money is a mere tool for the advancement of his Kingdom and for the equipping of saints. I then heard the words, “What would those who rely on money rely on when there is none?” I felt an invitation into God’s love for those who don’t know what it is to rely on God as a good Father. I saw the power of the love of money being broken.

‘Then as the golden river was flowing out there was an earthquake in the nation that shook ALL foundations. The ground began to split open and those foundations were revealed. I then heard the words “We will build on ancient foundations” I saw pillars being revealed from under the earth.

‘I saw those things that had been built on false foundations collapse into the voids – churches included. I saw those who had built already on ancient foundations stood strong! I then felt like the reaction to this would be for those on the strong foundations to say to those in the void “I told you so”, but I then saw this turn into an invitation once again. I saw people reaching their hands into the void to help people up onto their foundations and as they did, instead of saying “I told you so”, they were saying “God loves you so” – God was inviting people to join in the land that they did not labour for. I saw a rich blessing fall over the nation when those in Christ and who have built on ancient foundations of God’s truths reached out in love to those who had fallen into the voids.

‘The whole vision felt like a re-calibration. That the shaking and the fall of the power of money is just an invitation to come into love. To be part of the Gospel. To know worth, identity and destiny. I saw a national revival break out as peoples’ priorities changed and their love of money broke and they saw what it is to rely fully on God. We have an invitation to rebuild like never before. I feel that Christian voices will be risen up in parliament and that people will know the fear of the Lord in that place. I see huge resources for the sectors that work with the most vulnerable and those on the fringes and unseen.

‘We must pray and ask God for his perspective. That chaos is only chaos when we focus on the situation rather than God’s voice. That his voice brings everything to heavenly order.

‘Will you have your ear to the ground to hear it coming? Listen out for the bell ringing in Parliament.

‘I heard Father give this scripture as a summary: Matthew 6: 19-33

‘Blessings x’

Fulfilled Prophecy #13:16 – stark warning of Eurozone’s shaking

My previous musing that any fall of the EU (as David Noakes prophesied in November 2015) may coincide with, or even precede, Britain’s eventual departure from the EU. I wouldn’t be surprised if, as with ancient Egypt when calamitous events were necessary in order to make Pharaoh release the Hebrew slaves, then similar would be required to make Brussels “let our people go”!

Hence, my monitoring the progress in signs of that modern prophecy’s fulfillment.

Today, in Brussels calls for government stimulus to avert recession in eurozone as shocks mount, Ambrose-Evans Pritchard writes (my emphases),

‘The European Commission has issued a stark warning to EU finance ministers, calling for concerted fiscal stimulus to head off a recession and avert a protracted downturn before it is too late.

‘A briefing document for tomorrow’s Eurogroup meeting said the twin shocks of a no-deal Brexit and US car tariffs of 25pc days later risks compounding the current global trade slump and could test the limits of eurozone policy…’

The  business editor continues,

‘The EU authorities in Brussels have been slow to grasp the magnitude of the global economic downturn – erroneously counting on a swift rebound by China and emerging markets – but the blizzard of grim data from Germany and the deepening industrial recession has finally set off alarm bells

‘It is clear that dissenting opinion is at last making itself heard in Brussels. A joint statement by 23 automotive groups across Europe last month warned that a no-deal would shatter just-in-time supply chains and amount to a “devastating” and “seismic” blow to the car industry at a time when auto companies are already facing an existential crisis. “Brexit is not just a British problem, we are all concerned,” said the statement.

After looking at the European Central Bank’s (ECB) state-of-play, Ambrose concludes:

Impasse

‘Whatever the theoretical arguments, the ECB has reached a political dead end. Nine council members from countries making up over half Euroland GDP have attacked the latest package. “This loose money policy leads to less growth and lower productivity,” said Austria’s central bank governor Robert Holzmann.

The eurozone has reached an impasse. Monetary policy is exhausted and fiscal stimulus – beyond tinkering – is constrained by a tangle of rules and laws, so complex that the Commission has to provide a guide book to frustrated officials in national capitals. Now the currency bloc faces a barrage of recessionary shocks

‘This concentrates the mind. EU leaders must decide over coming days whether to engage seriously with Boris Johnson on his Brexit plan or whether to gamble on the Benn Act, an Article 50 extension, and a fresh referendum.

If they get it wrong and instead precipitate a no-deal, the economic chain reaction could spin out of control for them as well as for Britain. It is high-octane brinkmanship.’

‘Bulldozer’ Boris sees Brussels’ ‘Boss’ blink over the Backstop – is prophecy being fulfilled? (NI-Eire Prophecy Update #19)

Once again Wednesday night’s news is directly related to prophecy! (Like last week when the Lord dropped 4 political press reports into my lap and I recalled SIX directly related prophetical words)

On the surface, it appears Ireland’s Taoiseach, or Prime Minister, Leo Varadkar may not have stepped into his destiny of bringing a satisfactory solution to the stumbling block over Brexit – the infamous ‘Backstop’.

But a few days before last Christmas we looked in some depth at his claim, “We’re not preparing for a hard border between NI and Ireland in the event of a no deal.” (Prophecy Progress Check #1)

However, he since changed his tune, indubitably because Juncker stuck his Tusk into him during his visit to Dublin (in which the President of European Council cursed those Britons who desired to cut EU’s apron-strings completely, as herein).

But of course we’re not privy to the recent discussions Leo’s had with our new PM, yet now their and his ‘boss’ is happy to reconsider the backstop, then Leo is now free to get on with what the Lord would have him do, according to the prophetic word reiterated below.

Yesterday, Angela Merkel (effectively Brussels’ boss) suggested she may be willing to ditch the controversial backstop if the UK can agree a suitable alternative by 20th Sept, to which Boris Johnson said he’s “more than happy” with the suggestion, saying Brexit talks “can finally begin”.

The Telegraph reports:

‘Speaking at a press conference in Berlin Mrs Merkel said the backstop had always been a “fallback position” and would only come into effect if no other solution could be agreed that would protect the “integrity of the single market”.The German Chancellor said:

“If one is able to solve this conundrum, if one finds this solution, we said we would probably find it in the next two years to come but we can also maybe find it in the next 30 days to come. Then we are one step further in the right direction and we have to obviously put our all into this.”

‘Ms Merkel said she expected the UK to present its ideas for a new Brexit deal. “Britain should tell us what sort of ideas it has because it is not the core task of a German chancellor to understand the relationship between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland so well,” she said. “As you will know much better about all the ramifications of the Good Friday Agreement. We would like to hear first proposals put on the table by Britain. We have shown imagination and creativity in the past as the EU, I think here too we can find ways and means.”

NB. This year the EU recognised technology that makes the Backstop unnecessary!! (See most informative letter to The Telegraph in Footnote.)

THE PROPHECY

Now, review the pertinent parts of the prophetic word brought by Emma Stark on 27th February on the solution to the Brexit backstop and Ireland issues (read full transcript). It starts with the Lord talking about Leo Varadkar’s character and his developing a new relationship with Ulster’s leader Arlene Foster (see earlier Updates). Emma continues:

‘And I heard the Lord say, “They will be in a coalition.” I am not talking politically. I am not talking about divided Ireland. I am not talking about united Ireland. Don’t hear this through any agenda or political mindset. I heard the word “coalition” in terms of a new relationship, a new ability to see and understand each other, a new ability to figure some things out between each other. And I heard the Lord say this – it was so clear – He said, “Brexit is out of Time”. I don’t mean like it’s running out, because we know it’s running out in terms of the end of March – but it is “out of Time” of the order of God. And the Lord says, “Do not fear, even if there is a delay. Do not fear, if that looks like increased chaos.” For the Lord says, “There is an order, and I will start in Ireland,” And they will form such a new understanding, and a new relationship with one another, that the Lord says, “It will be a model for what I want to do in nations and how they will relate to each other, even across the continent of Europe and beyond.” But the Lord says, “I am beginning a work of reconciliation and seeing each other and solution in Ireland.”

‘And the Lord says, “That is going to even have an effect on Brexit.” The Lord says, “Let Ireland be solved first before Brexit can be unpacked and fully realised.” And you can see God working in an order around the nation, from Ireland in the south, up to Northern Ireland and across, down into Westminster. And the Lord is saying in this hour that we are to pray, even for the EU and even for Theresa May and Westminster, to give Ireland space and to not dominate in that place so that the Lord can raise up these leaders to see each other. And the Lord said this: “Oh intercessors, you have prayed about the Irish border, you have gone back and forward along it.” And the Lord says, “You have bound every demon that you knew how to bind, and you have been diligent and faithful.” But the Lord is even saying now, “You did not replace that which you bound with the solution from my throne room.” The Lord says, “It is a time for the intercessors to start to say over the Irish border, ‘God has a solution’, and to release the solution; not just to bind and limit that which is nasty, but to put a higher decree in place, an overarching decree that says, ‘There will be a relational solution’.” And the Lord says, “I need your decrees and your agreement that MY relational order will come even into that landmass”, says the Lord.

In respect of the announced changes, we should review what Emma also said by way of updating earlier words on Brexit:

‘The Lord also said this to me, that there had been a robbing of the DNA of the British Isles, and that the British Isles for centuries had been known for leadership in the earth. And yes, sometimes they got that just disgustingly wrong, and sometimes there was weeping for the need for repentance. But the Lord says, “In the middle of all of that, you forgot”, says the Lord to the British Isles, “that in your very core, in your very DNA, there was the ability to make a leadership role in the nations.” And Lord is saying that the nations are crying again for the British Isles to raise themselves up, and to know what leadership is. And the Lord says, “I am healing and restoring leaders, the length and breadth of the British Isles, in this hour.” And the Lord says, “If you want to know how to pray, you pray for Leo Varadkar in Dublin, you pray for Arlene Foster in Belfast.” And the Lord says, “There is going to come such a fresh template of how leaders across borders work with each other that it will heal the backstop, it will heal Ireland, it will propel Brexit to come forth in the right way. It will model a new way of relationship for the landmass of Europe.” And the Lord says, “It will enable even revival to come, as there is a domino effect from Ireland.” And so the Lord is saying, “Take hope. I am on My throne. I know what I am doing, but I need your agreement,” says God.  [That is, agreement per Amos 3:7 – emphases mine, RB]

Footnote – Letter to the Editor, published 21st August:

From Myles Power
Former EU Policy Adviser on Transport, Constitutional Affairs and Legal Affairs

‘SIR, There is no need for the Irish backstop in the Withdrawal Agreement, as I explained in a paper for the Centre for Welsh Studies.

‘In March, the European Parliament passed the “electronic freight transport information regulation”. This basically does away with need for border controls on freight throughout the EU. While the final text does not specifically mention a third country (as the UK, including Northern Ireland, will become on October 31), there is no reason why the European Commission cannot utilise the facility in the regulation.

‘Sabine Weyand (the deputy EU Brexit negotiator) said in an interview with Politico that no technology is available for the cross-border electronic identification of freight. If there is no technology available, why did the EU put in place a regulation for exactly that?

‘So, in my opinion, the backstop can be removed and the United Kingdom can depart on October 31 with an agreement in place that will not leave one part of the country annexed to the EU.’

Fulfilled Prophecy #13.15 – Germany and the Eurozone ARE shaking!

Following on from Simon Braker’s dream of European nations being bricks in a game of jenga, with reference to Britain being warned to “Come out!” (Fulfilled Prophecy #13.1), within days of Germany’s Angela Merkel having a 3rd bout of ‘prophetical’ shaking when meeting Finland’s PM, Veronika West heard the following (Facebook):

AN URGENT WORD FOR THE NATION OF GERMANY…!

EARLY HOURS OF THIS MORNING THE SPIRIT OF GOD WOKE ME TO PRAY FOR THE NATION OF GERMANY AND FOR THE GREAT SHAKING THAT IS COMING!!!

As I began to pray I saw the Chancellor Angela Merkel and I heard the Spirit say, “SHAKING, SHAKING, SHAKING, FOR THIS IS A SIGN OF THE SHAKING THAT IS COMING TO THIS NATION, WATCH! FOR I AM SHAKING THE GOVERNMENT, I AM SHAKING THE ECONOMY AND I AM SHAKING MY CHURCH IN THE NATION OF GERMANY, WATCH! FOR GERMANY WILL BE SHAKEN AND IT WILL BE SHIFTED IN THIS NEXT SEASON, MY SHAKING SHALL HUMBLE THE PROUD AND BRING DOWN THOSE WHO ARE STIFF-NECKED, WATCH AND PRAY! FOR GERMANY SHALL BE SHAKEN 3 TIMES, YES! 3 TIMES,!! FOR I SHALL SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE THIS LAND, PRAY MY SHAKING SHALL REVERBERATE THROUGHOUT THE NATIONS OF EUROPE, WATCH THE UNITED NATIONS, WATCH THE EUROPEAN UNION, GERMANY WILL BE SHAKEN TO ITS FOUNDATIONS, says the Spirit of God.

“BERLIN, UKRAINE AND FINLAND WILL SHAKE…!

As I cried out to God for Mercy He said, “WATCH BERLIN, WATCH FINLAND, WATCH UKRAINE, WATCH FOR A SHAKING SHALL COME TO THESE NATIONS IN THE DAYS AHEAD.” As I heard those words I saw the Nation of FINLAND BEING SHAKEN, THE NATION OF UKRAINE and then I saw a shaking in BERLIN…! WATCH AND PRAY…!

EUROPEAN & GLOBAL SHAKING – THE FINER DETAIL

AND today, over three weeks later, comes news that, ‘Recession fears returned to stalk global markets once more yesterday after Germany suffered its biggest factory slump in a decade and a wave of central bank stimulus stoked fears of a race to the bottom in a brewing currency war…(AND) Fears of a brewing currency war escalated after New Zealand’s central bank slashed interest rates to a record low of 1pc…(NZ’s) deeper-than-expected cut knocked its currency more than 2pc against the US dollar to its lowest level in more than three years and dragged Australia’s currency briefly down to a 10-year low. The move was “a further sign that central banks seem fixed on a race to the bottom” as tensions over weakening currencies surge…’ (emphases mine).

With his thorough and incisive analysis the DT’s international business editor Ambrose Evans-Pritchard delivers this masterly in-depth article (click first image to read in full but note, not in new window):

These extracts are the more pertinent points relating to the EU (emphases mine):

‘…The world’s G2 economies are in a state of cold war. Europe is the chief collateral casualty. The eurozone will soon pay – or is already paying – the price of an economic model that is highly geared to the global trade cycle and depends on world consumption to make up for its structural inability to generate demand.  

‘Mario Draghi, the ECB’s president, says the eurozone’s manufacturing recession is getting “worse and worse”.  Germany’s industrial output fell a further 1.5pc in June and is down more than 5pc over the past year. “We would characterise today’s industrial production report as devastating,” said Carsten Brzeski [Wed 7th] from ING. There is no relief in the forward-looking indicators. The Ifo Institute’s gauge of production plans for the next three months has crashed to the lowest since the depths of the eurozone crisis in 2012.

‘European companies are caught in the Sino-US cross-fire…sales are now caught up in Chinese counter-tariffs. It is a key reason why Daimler has issued four profit warnings over the past year. The trade war is compounding the electrification shock that has thrown Europe’s car industry into seizure…’

Europe cannot handle so many shocks. It already has one foot in deflation. The ECB has lost monetary traction. Interest rates are minus 0.4pc and are close to the “reversal rate”, where further cuts become contractionary through a squeeze on bank margins…’

‘The ECB could in theory resort to helicopter money to fund government spending, but this would violate the Maastricht Treaty and run afoul of Germany’s constitutional court.

‘Euroland’s only defence is “new deal” fiscal stimulus – but this too is made impossible by the rigid legal and ideological structure. It meets the Stability Pact and the machinery of fiscal restraint.

‘Europe’s leaders cannot do much about Trump, China, and global deflation, but they can at least avert an unnecessary Brexit shock by changing the Withdrawal Agreement. This is not to say they will. Dominic Cummings is right to warn that the EU may opt for economic self-harm to achieve its religious objectives.

‘Yet criticism of the Barnier method is growing louder, especially in Germany. The Commission’s feet are at last being held to the fire. Gabriel Felbermayr, president of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, says the strategy of forcing Britain to jump through divorce hoops before trade talks could begin was a serious error and has led to a dead-end.

“The EU must finally start to think strategically. This means giving up the dogma of the inviolable four freedoms and offering the UK, and likewise Switzerland, the maximum possible economic integration that is possible without political union,” he said.

‘..The EU’s Brexit goal until now has been to close ranks and uphold doctrinal purity.  It shoved aside those Europeans who called for a flexible Continental Partnership as a model for the EU’s future ties with the near abroad. The higher imperative was to make a point. But the economic dangers have now reached such a level that an additional – and easily avoidable – knife-fight with Borisian Britain risks blowing up the EU project entirely. At what point does the EU’s self-preservation reflex trump ideology?

Mr Varadkar could climb down from his nationalist tree and accept an all-Ireland farm deal, with a softish border for the remaining goods trade (tiny in volume), cleared by trusted trader schemes far from the front line.

‘Or he can bring about the no-deal he decries, and on the hardest of terms with 50,000 lost jobs or more, and be forced to erect physical border infrastructure by the EU in diplomatically horrible circumstances under threat of expulsion from the EU customs union. Moreover, as he says, the ordeal will go on, and on, and on. Should he change his mind and opt for compromise, Berlin, Paris, and other EU capitals will have the justification they need – and some now want – to reopen the Withdrawal Agreement.

‘If the Taoiseach denies them this graceful way out, then remember the Juncker dictum: “We have instruments of torture in the basement.”

Also note well Ambrose’s earlier eye-opener EU sharpens torture tools as Swiss showdown escalates into energy war, which includes this alarming example of its totalitarian nature:

‘..Brussels is preparing other tools of suffocation. There are threats to withdraw mutual recognition for exports of medical equipment.  This has the character of a creeping blockade. “In theory the EU could cut off access to almost anything,” said Pieter Cleppe from Open Europe in Brussels.

“It is a worrying precedent that a country can be cut off like this for purely-political motives when it has not violated its obligations,” he said.

‘Switzerland’s problems have been growing ever since the Brexit referendum. The country has become a victim of proxy diplomatic warfare, as made clear in leaked comments last month by the EU commissioner in charge of bilateral talks, Johannes Hahn…’

Maybe the EU is the fourth beast of Daniel’s dreadful vision, as recorded in chapter 7 of his Old Testament Book. Therefore, EU: prepare to meet thy decreed doom.

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #14: Irish Govt’s Brexit policy ‘is in tatters’, its bluff ‘being called’

On directly opposite sides of the world to one another, Phil View in New Zealand and me here in the UK, noticed yesterday morning an article published in Brexit Central by Dr Ray Bassett, author of politico-economic papers on Ireland, membership of the EU and Brexit, and UK think-tank Policy Exchange’s Senior Fellow on EU Affairs.

Having a lot to catch up online I ran off a hard-copy to read at leisure whilst munching lunch and then replied to his comment on NI-Eire Update #13,

“I note especially, Bassett’s inference that supports my repeated supposition that Eire will be better joining UK & NI outside EU.”

Ray’s credentials are impressive. Having served on ‘the Irish Government Talks Team during the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement negotiations (later) as Irish Joint Secretary to the British Irish Intergovernmental Conference in Belfast, 2001-2005 (then) headed up the Irish Consular Service and the Irish Abroad Unit (dealing with relations with the Irish Diaspora). Prior to retiring, he was Irish Ambassador to Canada, Jamaica and the Bahamas for six years.’

In reading Ray’s insights into the current Irish and British political situations with the EU, my attention was caught mid-way by:

‘…Meanwhile, our recent guest, the US President, is leaving nobody in any doubt about his support for a true Brexiteer in power in London. A future trade deal between a fully independent UK and the USA, coupled with trade wars between Washington and Brussels, is the stuff of nightmares for Ireland.

‘The London consultancy firm Primary Access, in analysing Irish investment abroad and Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland, stated that “Ireland has €93bn committed to the US, and €88bn to the UK in direct investment abroad; the comparable numbers for France and Germany are €4.4bn and €3.1bn respectively. The same pattern repeats in terms of inward direct investment. The US has €179bn, and the UK €58bn invested in Ireland; France has €15bn and Germany €5bn”.

‘As I have stated on many previous occasions, Ireland’s economic connections with mainland Europe are overwhelmingly those of the multinational (mainly American) companies located within the Republic.

‘If the international climate changes and these companies no longer feel comfortable in Ireland, we will be left with precious little else. In the meantime, our two closest economic and cultural partners, our neighbours to the west and east, as well as home to the majority of our diaspora, will have moved on without us…’  (emphases mine).

So you may readily understand why I was reminded of my personal opinion since 2012, as shared herein, that the Lord may want the WHOLE of the British Isles disconnected from the EU and to become fully independent, either as distinct entities of The United Kingdom & Northern Ireland and of the Republic of Ireland, or as a harmonious politico-economic entity like Britain and the Commonwealth of Nations.

You may recall the growing calls noted here and here for IREXIT and the establishing of a political party for that very purpose?

Therefore, you may wish to read in full Ray Bassett’s The Irish Government’s Brexit policy is in tatters and its bluff is now being called.

Fulfilled Prophecy #13 cont’d: investment analyst says EU’s collapse now “imminent”

Thank you to Jonathan Ely at Why Leave The EU? for alerting me to yet more news of signs indicative of the fulfillment of the prophetic word delivered on 17th Nov 2015 by Bible teacher David Noakes urging Britain to “Come out!” of the EU ahead of its Fall.

Some years ago international investment analyst and advisor Doug Casey predicted the fall of the EU and was asked by Nick Giambruno, “What’s changed since then?”

Well, what has changed,” replies Doug (emphases mine), “is that the entire situation has gotten much worse. The inevitable has now become the imminent.”

Read Nick’s concise interview in full to gain the full gist of Doug’s expert conclusion with his straightforward citing of financial facts:

“The European Union evolved, devolved actually, from basically a free trade pact among a few countries to a giant, dysfunctional, overreaching bureaucracy. Free trade is an excellent idea. However, you don’t need to legislate free trade; that’s almost a contradiction in terms. A free trade pact between different governments is unnecessary for free trade. An individual country interested in prosperity and freedom only needs to eliminate all import and export duties, and all import and export quotas. When a country has duties or quotas, it’s essentially putting itself under embargo, shooting its economy in the foot. Businesses should trade with whomever they want for their own advantage.

“But that wasn’t the way the Europeans did it. The Eurocrats, instead, created a treaty the size of a New York telephone book, regulating everything. This is the problem with the European Union. They say it is about free trade, but really it’s about somebody’s arbitrary idea of “fair trade,” which amounts to regulating everything. In addition to its disastrous economic consequences, it creates misunderstandings and confusion in the mind of the average person. Brussels has become another layer of bureaucracy on top of all the national layers and local layers for the average European to deal with…”

He supports his case with historical facts too, especially on how the many differences between various nations and desire for independence are now rocking the EU boat:

The EU was built upon a foundation of sand, doomed to failure from the very start. The idea was ill-fated because the Swedes and the Sicilians are as different from each other as the Poles and the Irish. There are linguistic, religious, and cultural differences, and big differences in the standard of living. Artificial political constructs never last. The EU is great for the “elites” in Brussels; not so much for the average citizen…

“There are movements in Corsica and a half dozen other departments in France. Even in Belgium, the home of the EU, the chances are excellent that Flanders will separate at some point (See Telegraph’s Belgian king meets Flemish far right for first time since 1930s amid fears of ‘Vlexit’ breakaway.) The chances are better in the future that the remaining countries in Europe are going to fall apart as opposed to being compressed together artificially…”

Asked “How does Brexit affect the future of the European Union?”, Doug replies:

Well, it’s the beginning of the end. The inevitable has now become the imminent. Britain has always been perhaps the most different culture of all of those in the European Union…”

And things ARE starting to shake – and there’s fighting talk! – because, as Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reports, Italy to activate its ‘parallel currency’ in defiant riposte to EU ultimatum:

The eurozone elites are looking straight down the barrel of an Italian economic revolt and a parallel currency. Subversive “minibot” treasury notes are back in play…

‘By some maniacal reflex the dying Commission of Jean-Claude Juncker has chosen this moment to draw up the first indictment letter of the revamped debt and deficits regime. Italy faces €3.5bn of fines for failure to tighten its belt. It has 48 hours to respond.
